2GB to 4GB, how much of an improvement? by Alfred Kaufmann
I am thinking of going to 4GB ram and I wonder if it is worth it? The only reason I am thinking of doing it is to turn off virtual memory and eliminate swapping on the hard drive. Please let me know your experience if you have done this upgrade. Al

2nd Drive on notebook is bumping system disk to Disk 1 position. by TangentRW
Hello, I have an HP DV7 notebook that I recently added a second SATA 500 GB hard drive in the expansion bay. The purpose of the drive is to serve as a data drive. I also intend to store an image of my system disk on this internal expansion drive so that I can restore my system and apps when I am in the field. For most purposes the drive seems to be functioning normally. However, I recently...

My second HD (D:) - disappears from the listing and is not accessable until I reboot. It then appears and if the computer is left for a period of time, it disappears again. When it is available, it works fine. Any suggestions? It is an IDE 40gb if that helps.

2nd Hard Drive OFFLINE by mom2twoboys
Hi There, I am NOT on vista, but on XP Pro. I don't know where else to go, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to try here.

2nd Hard drive spinning down within minutes by J
Friday Eve I have the hard drive set to power-down after 20 minutes. But, the 2nd drive is regularly parking and sleeping. And consequently, I wait for it to start spinning when needed or when the OS thinks it needs to spin to do what I am attempting to do. How do I set the 2nd drive to obey the power-down setting?

2nd Hard-Drive - Not Recognized by fly_fishr[_2_]
Recently, I tried adding an external hard-drive which is PnP (Plug n Play) - My system NEVER recognized it despite numerous different tries at installation. I returned the drive, (thinking it was defective) and the "new" unit also would not be recognized - it shows as an, "mass storage device" but won't allow me to assign a drive letter to it. I finally gave up on that - and figure IF I...

2nd HDD in vista by Martin W13
Hi Just built a system with a SATA HDD as the boot disk and a DVD drive on the IDE cable. I've just added an IDE HDD on to the same cable as the DVD and although the BIOS recognises it's there when Vista boots it can't seem to find it. Do I need to move the jumper on the back of the Drive to Slave (it's currently on Cable Select) or would I be better getting an IDE-SATA convertor and...
